    Hi everyone,

    just asking if someone got experience with them.

    Personally I think they would look great but I'd try to matte them down a bit.

    Yeah the general consensus seems to be that they are relatively thin so if you use a regular brush you will need lots of coats, so better use an airbrush.
    They look pretty cool though!

    Yeah, I've got them. They are a tad thin, but they coat really well. I've found that they work best over a black primer. I've tried some with white primer, but they didn't hardly show. Black is best. The effect is cool, but shows much better over large surface areas. I like painting mine on, then applying a wash to dull it a tad, then coming back and applying a little bit to the specific areas that I really want to pop. I've found that to work best.

    FYI, I also got their metallic (gold) paint set and love them! The color variations are subtle enough from shade to shade that you can easily attain the exact color you want. Not too expensive either!

    No they are metallic paints. They are just very thin.
    There are YT guides on then as well, check them out.

    Yeah, they're paints. They work best over another base color though. Think glaze.
